Rooted in Tradition: Building for People of All Faiths
Catholic Charities of Broome County proudly announces it has achieved $3.1 million dollars of it's original Capaital Campaign goal of $3.3 million to create a new and expanded headquarters.
To augment and strengthen the services that we must offer to a growing population and diverse community in need,
To provide a facility that can accomodate this increasing demand efficiently and effectively.
However, due to the rising costs of construction and the need to do additional work on the existing structure, the new goal is $4.08 million.
Compassion and quality set the standard for the extraordinary diversity of services that we offer as we continually strive to be responsive to the community that we serve.
We achieve this success efficiently: 90% of our revenues go directly to client services.
Yet with increasing demands from a growing population of people in need within our community and shrinking Government funding, Catholic Charities faces greater challenges than ever before in its history.
These great challenges, however, present a great opportunity.
Through our campaign, "Rooted in Tradition: Building for People of All Faiths", we are building a new headquarters that will meet the increasing facility and program demands and allow for future expansion.
We have also established a $1 million endowment fund that will ensure the continuity of services despite the inevitable government funding cuts. To date we have raised $80,000.
As we celebrate 75 years of service to the Southern Tier, the campaign will enable us to continue our vital work as we meet the growing needs of the people who seek our help and support.
With a dedicated group of nearly 400 volunteers, a staff of 440 highly-trained professionals, and an effective and efficient administration, Cathilic Charities serves in justice, hope and dignity to people of all faiths.
With the generosity of our donors and friends, we can ensure that the good work and critical services we offer continue and strengthen those most in need. The Campaign for Catholic Charities of Broome County is helping us to continue the important work that we do for the people in our community.
